I'm doing the ALA YA Award Winners Challenge for 2017


I haven't done a book reading challenge in years, but when I saw Anne's post last week on completing the "Read all the ALA YA Award books of the year" challenge, I got all excited to do it. So, I've signed up and am eagerly awaiting January 23, 2017 when the winners will be announced. And, I mentioned it to a woman at work who said, "Journaling, reading, and a challenge? I'm in!" so now I have someone to talk about the books with in person!
